We were where it all started for Walt Disney World – in the Magic Kingdom. We found new merch, food, and some construction updates for you this week!
What’s New on Main Street U.S.A.
We found the popcorn cart that is usually located by Guest Services is still missing – and now the umbrella has been removed.
The Dapper Dans are performing on Main Street as usual, but now they are in their Fall Gear with autumn-inspired colors – and that also means some new songs have been added to their repertoire. See if you can catch them performing the Headless Horseman Song. That’s a can’t miss!
You know balloons are a classic sight on Main Street, and now you can take some of that home with you with this new purse – and it won’t deflate in a week!
What’s New in Tomorrowland
There are some construction walls around Tomorrowland. You’ll have to navigate around some on your way to the Peoplemover or Space Mountain.
What’s New in Liberty Square
Rivers of America has been refilled after a partial drainage for a few weeks. There is no confirmed date on the return of the Riverboat yet. We’ll be sure to keep you posted!
And on the topic of refurbishment – a third of Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe is closed for refurbishment, but there’s plenty of merchandise the store for your Christmas shopping.
And who says ornaments are just for Christmas! This is great with its spiders and spider webs!
We showed you the special parasols in Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival – well, the Magic Kingdom Parasol Artists are busy too. These Haunted Mansion and Nightmare Before Christmas Parasols are perfect – especially if you’re attending the Halloween Party!
Which Parasol would you pick? We might just get both of them!
What’s New in Adventureland
New Magic Kingdom Merchandise
We found some cute shirts and hoodies for the kiddos. For the Lilo and Stitch fan, check out this t-shirt.
What do you think of the purse-built-into-the-shirt concept? The DFB Team is split on this one.
And for cooler weather – these Lion King character hoodies are fun for the kiddos.
Check out the hood!
Not to be left out, Pumba from the Lion King also has his own hoodie.
Update on Single-Use Straws in the Magic Kingdom
We found straws at all counter service locations in the Magic Kingdom – and you can pick them up on their own. They are not request only, behind a counter, or eliminated yet at counter service restaurants.
Also – we know it has been brutally hot in Orlando lately – remember you can always pick up a free cup of cold water from all counter service restaurants. Stay hydrated while you’re out there!
Those are some fun new items and updates for this week from the Magic Kingdom. Keep an eye on DFB for updates in all the parks as we find them!
